The Black Nobility
In this article I present an overview of the history of the Black Nobility, showing how they are and always have been a Matriarchy, and that their rule over the world is just as despotic as that of the Papacy.
For those who wish to bring disparate pieces of occult research together, a study of the Black Nobility is essential. These piratical dynasties - branches of the Setian-Atonists of old - steer our world toward chaos and disaster, and have done so from the beginning. What we know as Communism and Socialism are but twentieth century manifestations of their grander subterranean conspiracy, known to so very few.
I think the Communist conspiracy is merely a branch of a much bigger conspiracy - Dr. Bella Dodd (former member of the National Committee of the U.S. Communist Party)
Dr. John Coleman (ex-MI6 officer and whistle-blower) reminds us that the term Black Nobility is one used by these families to describe themselves. This is because, in times past, like the Mafia, they enjoyed being known for their black deeds. Although today we are adroitly hoodwinked by the media, which presents these families as great philanthropists and benefactors, they are in fact the supreme authorities not only behind powerful chivalric and equestrian orders, but a network of sinister satanic cults guilty of unimaginable crimes against humanity. (Here for more...)
My revelations concerning the origin and history of the Templars and Female Illuminati (Order of Sion) directly impact the saga of the Black Nobility, whose origins also trace back to ancient Egypt. This intriguing connection to the old world is particularly visible when we research one of the most important Black Nobility families - the House of Orange.
The House of Orange is a most ancient institution. The dynasty has long intermarried with many other noble families throughout Europe and the world. After converting to Protestantism, their descendants crossed to Britain when, in 1690, they became ruling monarchs, ancestors of today's Windsors.
But what do we know of their origins? So much has been written and said of them, and yet what does the man in the street know about Queen Elizabeth or Queen Beatrix? What do we know of their one time enemy - the Papacy - which denied them the world power they sought but lost? And what power remains in their hands?
Given that the designations Protestant and Catholic serve as convenient disguises for the world-controllers, we see that the Black Nobility have made great use of this camouflage. In my opinion, we are quite wrong to think of them as Protestants. We are equally wrong to consider papal elites Catholic. Members of these rival groups are to be thought of as Luciferians or Setian-Atonists. In this sense they are disciples - and perhaps even direct descendants - of the Cult of Venus, Dragon Court or Order of Sion. A study of their rites, regalia, heraldry and symbolism leaves us in no doubt of this fact.
Behind the PR veil, members of these families interact with one another heedless of religious affiliation. The "Protestant" Dutch royals are related to the Spanish and Hungarian nobility, the members of which - such as King Juan Carlos - are "Catholic." For Alpha Lodge members it's all a matter of window-dressing designed to fool the masses. It has worked for centuries, hence their ubiquitous insider-smiles.
But as said, what do we know of these oligarchs? What do we know of their ancestors who, after the fall of Akhenaton, set up a new unholy empire in Ireland? What do we know of their Merovingian branch which colonized France, to later establish the Knights Templar? And what do we know of their Eastern branches who ruled Persia, Syria, Armenia and Palestine? Do we know of the awesome power of their queens, who after murdering their husbands, married their sons, setting them on the thrones of the world to rule in their names? Do we know that one of these autocrats was the Biblical Jesus who, after the death of Nero, nearly became Emperor?
The Protevangelium is interesting in many respects, but particularly in how it portrays the biblical family as being exceedingly rich and influential, calling the parents of Mary 'rich' and having the 'mark of royalty' - Ralph Ellis
The research of the great Ralph Ellis provides us with the best insights into the origin and history of the Black Nobility. Consequently I refer readers to his monumentally important book Jesus, King of Edessa. Published in 2012, this superlative work reveals how ancient the families of the Black Nobility are, and how much power they've wielded through the centuries.
As Ralph shows in his book, Mary Magdalene, the House of Orange is related to the descendants of the Hyksos nobility who, after their exile from Egypt, moved to Parthia in Eastern Iran. From this region they relocated to Syria in 4 AD, after which they are to be found in Provence, France. In the seventeenth century, after their conversion to Protestantism, they married in with Dutch branches of the dynasty and crossed to Britain where they became the ruling monarchs - the Windsors.
This family is really an ancient network descended from notorious pharaohs of old. The network extends across Europe and the world. The Black Nobility are to be found listed as the rulers of Italy, Sicily, Spain, Portugal, France, Alsace-Lorraine, Greece, Switzerland, Belgium, Holland and Britain. Among the bloodlines are the houses of Hanover, Habsburg, Lorraine, Guelph, Nassau, Hesse, Guise, Estes, Savoy, Marlborough, Grosvenor, etc.
Prince Philip is of the house of Oldenburg, the Queen Mother was of the Bowes-Lyon family, Queen Elizabeth is a descendant of the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha dynasty, and Prince Charles is a descendant of the Mountbattens, who changed their name from Battenberg to disguise their Germanic origins.
William of Orange's forebears came from the town and principality of Orange on the left bank of the Rhone to the north of Avignon in France. In the 13th century the counts of Orange called themselves princes, and in 1544 a count of the German House of Nassau, whose Lahn river bordered the Palatinate, William the Silent, became Prince of Orange as William I. He had extensive holdings in the Netherlands...and on the death of his cousin Rene in 1544 he inherited the combined wealth of the Houses of Nassau-Breda and Chalon-Orange - Nicholas Hagger (Secret History of the West)
This Parthian group were not the first branch of the Hyksos nobility to enter Britain. In fact, over 1,000 years before the first century AD, the main body of Hyksos-Atonists set up a new kingdom in Britain, obliterating the Druidic Order - the Servants of Truth - in the process.
Ralph's investigation into the Parthian-Edessan nobility does not dwell on the question of female secret societies. Nevertheless, Ralph's findings prove invaluable for those wishing to hone in on this controversial subject.
In my video presentation The Eastern Illuminati, I mention the various power-families and personages who constitute less known branches of the Setian-Atonist cabal whose tentacles spread across the planet. In my article The Cult of Mithras I also address this subject, showing how secret societies of Persia and the Levant were able to draw on the esoteric traditions of the ancient Magi. Before the rise of Zoroastrianism, the Cult of Mithras attracted Roman soldiers, merchants and nobles from all over the Middle East and Eastern Europe. A great many Masonic rituals actually derive from long lost Persian traditions.
I also show that the Persian Magi were a bone fide branch of the high Aryan-Druidic culture, and that they too were later suppressed by despotic forces, such as that of Constantine's Church, the Templars and Italian Black Nobility. Each ignoble group enriched themselves with the hoary traditions and customs of previous cultures now forgotten. A deep study of royal symbolism confirms this, as does a deep study of secret society symbolism.
Without these antique customs and elements, there would be no royalty, theocracy or masonry as we know them. Everything we see around us in the modern world is the result of a massive, age-long campaign of colonization, appropriation and cannabilization. The Masonry that emerged out of the Gaonim of Babylon and Atonism of Egypt, preserves but does not create. It empowers itself and its members by way of rites and symbols taken from the high Arya by force and cunning.
Most importantly, as shown throughout my work, there is hardly a symbol employed which is male. Most of it is absolutely female. This is a fact completely missed by every researcher and scholar today.
In my analysis of the agendas of the world's most powerful secret societies, I highlight the role played by Princess Meritaten, daughter of Akhenaton, who according to legend lies buried in Country Kerry, Ireland.
Meritaten's husband was known to the prehistoric Irish as Mil or Mile, and to the Scots as Gaythelos. Ralph Ellis believes he was none other than Pharaoh Aye or Aya, who was dethroned and forced to flee Egypt after Akhenaton's fall. According to Ellis, his favorite emblem - the red glove - appears on the flag of Northern Ireland. The couple frequented the environs of County Down. (Here for more...)
On the insignia of Ulster we also see the Star of the Davids or Atonists. The red cross, normally associated with the Templars, also appears. It denotes the Alpha Lodges of Masonry, specifically the Knights of the Garter, Order of St. Michael and St. George, and the myriad lesser orgs under their control, such as the Orange Order and Black Preceptory, etc.
Ralph Ellis entertains the interesting idea that the remains of Queen Tiye, mother of Pharaoh Akhenaton, lie in Tara, Ireland.
If this is true, Ireland's history will be changed forever. Tiye was a Great Royal Wife, which means she was a member, and perhaps leader of the female Dragon Court. If her resting place is Ireland, then the Dragon Court's possible headquarters wasn't Egypt, but Ireland.
Given that Tiye's father (Akhenaton's uncle) was Aya, husband of Meritaten, we see that Ireland (Scota) was indeed home to senior Setian-Atonists.
In Irish mythology, Tiye appears as Queen Tea Tephi, said to be buried at or near Tara, high capital of the Irish Chieftains - the Milesian-Gaelic kings. The symbolism incorporated into the design of Tara - of the central mound - is patently female. The Stone of Fal (Scone), which originally lay at Tara, is now the coronation stone under St. Edward's Chair, on which British monarchs are crowned. What a surprise! (Here & Here for more...)
Again, the symbolism tells us that although the nations and empires may be openly governed by male potentates, the real power behind the throne is female. Indeed, the very symbolism of the throne is female, representing the Great Seat - Isis.
Could Tara in Ireland, capital of the high kings, be named after Egypt's Queen Tiye, mother of Akhenaton? Was she laid to rest at this site? What does this mean for world history if the most powerful dynasty of Atonists re-established their corrupt empire in the West? (Here for more...)
Although Ireland became their home, the Setian-Atonists were responsible for obliterating the Druids and Bards. That story is told in my Irish Origins of Civilization books and site.
From the ancient Western Arya they appropriated the elements of civilization subsequently employed for deceptive and inhuman purposes.
Returning to the Parthian branch of the Setian-Atonists, two female figures emerge as leading characters. They are Queen Thea Muse Ourania and her daughter Queen Julia Helena of Adiabene. They lived during the first century AD, and being kin of the power-crazed matriarch Cleopatra VII, they were legal claimants to the rulership of the entire Roman Empire. After converting to Judaism, Helena settled in Edessa and conspired to place her son on the throne of Roman Empire, to thereby become ruler of the world in her name.
As Ralph Ellis expertly proves, this Parthian-Edessan dynasty is spoken of cryptically in the New Testament and works of Jewish historian Josephus Flavius, himself a lesser member of the dynasty. Although they were practically erased from history, this dynasty was connected with many historical characters and events. As descendants of the Hyksos nobility, they have intimate connections with powerful forces in Babylon, Palestine, Persia, Syria, Armenia, Greece, France, Germany, Holland and Britain, not to mention other places. (Here fore more...)
Of course the central thesis of importance for Ralph Ellis is the identity of the Biblical Jesus. As far as he is concerned, Jesus was none other than King Izas of Edessa, son of Queen Helena of Adiabene.
Fascinating and relevant as Ralph's research is, I find the female characters mentioned in the saga to be far more interesting and important in terms of the secret history of the world and origin of the Black Nobility.
Was the secret society of Queen Helena and her descendants the prototype of that which later gave rise to the infamous Priory de Sion and Knights Templar? Did these societies become disciples of the overarching female branch of the ancient Dragon Court, or were they bloodline descendants of it? The behavior of Hugh de Payens and his nine fellows on Temple Mount leads us to believe so. Were the relics he unearthed in Jerusalem those of Queen Helena, mother of Jesus? Is the infamous female skull of the Templars that of Mary Magdalene, or her mother? (Here for more...)
A most intriguing revelation made by Ralph Ellis concerns the identity of Mary Magdalene. She was, in fact, the daughter of Queen Helena and sister of Jesus. In his book Mary Magdalene: Princess of Orange, Ralph shows that she relocated to France and started her own bloodline. This matriarchal line married in with those we now know as the Merovingians. The line also intermarried with other powerful concerns, such as the Benjaminites from Greece (Arcadia), and Gaelic-Atonist nobility from Britain, resident there since the time of Meritaten. From France, her bloodline moved to Germany and Holland, making up the notorious Hanoverian dynasty and House of Orange, the color orange being a primary insignia of the Magdalene bloodline.
…if Jesus and Mary were redheads, then there is yet another cultural and genetic pathway through which this ginger genome entered the royal houses of northern Europe. It was further argued in Mary Magdalene, Princess of Orange, that Mary Magdalene settled in the city of Orange in southern France. But the princes of Orange in France were eventually exiled from their small city-state, and became the Dutch Princes of Orange instead. But the Dutch royalty has long been noted for its ginger haired phenotype: all the way from Guillaume de Gellone-Orange in the late 8th century, down to the present Prince Willem-Alexander of Orange – Ralph Ellis (Jesus, King of Edessa)
I have shown from authentic documents that, from its introduction into France by monks until the advent of the reign of James I of England, British Masonry was purely Roman Catholic, and that its Grand Masters, of whom I have provided the official list, were drawn exclusively from the Court, the Nobility or the Prelacy…Despite the birth of the distinctive Masonry of William of Orange in 1694, the ancient British Masonry preserved its ancient statutes under the Protestant King and remained Roman Catholic: proof of this is to be found in the precious Masonic documents which I propose to publish, and which escaped the mad orgy of destruction at the hands of the innovators of modern Masonry in 1747 – Brother Teder (L'irregularite du Grand Orient de France, 1909)
Note the painting above. In certain portraits the king's sword passes between the ears of the horse, giving it the subliminal appearance of a unicorn, a mythical emblem of the Sisterhood. A white horse is found on the insignia of the Hanoverian Black Guelphs whose motto was "We are not terrified," or "We are afraid of nothing and no one." recalling the nature of the Nazarean Fourth Sect. (Here for more...)
Earlier I mentioned the Papacy, which was for centuries the rival of the Black Nobility. What we know of the Edessan royals - headed by its queens - was denied ultimate power by those who followed the brand of Judaism "lite" concocted by arch-deceiver Josephus Flavius. As Ralph Ellis shows throughout his many astonishing works, Josephus' intrigue led to what we now know as Papal Christianity. Although highly inauthentic and spurious, this religious system was authenticated by the secretive Gaonim and their elite Roman compatriots. They saw to it that it eclipsed the Fourth Sect of King Izas (Jesus) and his Nazarene followers. During his despotic reign, Constantine the Great made sure this faux Christianity dominated the world.
However, as time passed, the Vatican was gradually and secretly subverted by the Templar-Clerics and their Sabbatean agents. By the time of Pope John Paul II it was exceptionally Socialistic. Coincidentally, the royals of the world also began espousing Socialistic outlooks and paradigms consistent with the Fourth Sect's teachings. From the 1970's onward, we find that both Crown and Gown changed their spots and joined forces, ideologically and politically. Both have signed on for Fabian Socialism, Internationalism and Globalism. The New World Order takes birth from a marriage between theocracy and autocracy, two hands serving the same psychotic brain.
Exposing the families of the Black Nobility - despotic, self-serving rulers of many lands and nations - entails first recognizing that they are not Jews or Christians and never have been. They merely pretend to be Protestants and Catholics. Their act is simply a means to an end, a matter of realpolitik, of galvanizing and maintaining world control.
Decoding the symbolism employed by the self-appointed oligarchs assists us in our investigation into their roots and agendas. These include the pyramid, pentagram, red cross, lion and unicorn, white horse, double-headed eagle, twin dragons (as seen on the City of London crest), triple lion motif, skull and bones, and seated figure of Britannia, etc.
As we saw with the Red Hand of Ulster and Star of David, many of their favorite symbols trace back to ancient Egypt, to the time of Akhenaton and the Atonists who were finally deposed and exiled from Egypt.
After the fall of their corrupt rule in Egypt, the Setian-Atonists headed West to establish themselves in other lands. Their descendants enjoy considerable power and wealth to this day, via inhuman organizations such as the Bilderberg Group, European Commission, World Bank, and so on. Their willing agents are to be found in every nation, government, institution, corporation, college and university. They are often the heads of religion and government, but also work through a network of philanthropic organizations and public charities. The bulk of their wealth is secreted away in countries such as Belgium, Italy and Switzerland, as well as in offshore banking establishments not known to the public.
One of their principle symbols is that of the double-headed eagle. It signifies their control which stretches from one hemisphere of the world to the other, from East to West. All of humanity dutifully serves their hidden puppet-masters under the shadow of the great eagle of death and destruction which has torn out the heart and soul of the world, leaving only ashes and ruins in its wake.
In conclusion, I maintain that the true architecture of world control is completely fathomed when we factor in the points presented here in my four articles.
The Templars were never wholehearted Christians in the common sense of the word. At some point after their formation they secretly aligned with the Nazarene Sect and Edessan monarchy which, after converting to Judaism, espoused the ideology of the Nazarenes. Doing so placed these groups in opposition to the kind of Papal Christianity devised by the Roman elite, with the assistance of their chief mythmonger Josephus Flavius.
For a long while the Nazarene-Edessans (the Eastern Illuminati) and Papists were rivals. However, in the late nineteenth century the two groups began singing from the same hymn sheet. No understanding of modern times is possible without a recognition of this confederation.
In the fourteenth century, after the suppression of the Templars, their servants (the Clerics) eventually took control of the world, and soon fortuitously aligned with the network of royal dynasties known as the Black Nobility, many of them descended from the Edessan monarchy.
De Molay's hope was that the Templars could be reactivated there under another name. That name, according to the tradition, is Freemasonry. Strict Observance Masonry incorporated references to the Templars into its rites and degrees – Glenn Magee (Hegel and the Hermetic Tradition)
The Clerics eventually successfully infiltrated and took over the Knights Hospitallers (or Knights of Malta) and thereafter negotiated alliances with Sabbateans and Freemasons, forming a powerful subversive cabal, known colloquially as the Illuminati.
The important connections between Templars (Merovingians) and other branches of the nobility throughout Europe began in the eleventh century, at the time of the First Crusade, when Hugh de Payens, Godfrey de Bouillon, and the rest of the Merovingian-Templars, were supplied, aided and befriended by super-wealthy Italian merchants who ruled the Mediterranean. That lucrative connection has been preserved to this day. The fabulous wealth of these groups is hidden in countries such as Switzerland, Belgium and Malta, not to mention in many off-shore banking houses.
This wealth was behind the formation of Communism which, after failing in Russia, underwent many makeovers. Its most successful tentacle has been Fabian-Marxism, the ideologues of which have been given the mandate of socializing the entire planet, a process almost completed. Their chief weapon in this enterprise is the media which daily succeeds in conditioning the minds of millions of men and women utterly unaware of the histories, beliefs and machinations of the world's most powerful secret societies.
Novices are to realize that although members of the Illuminati appear, on the surface, to be Jews, Christians and Muslims, their cunning guises are not to be trusted. We are not to be hoodwinked by their obvious public colors and allegiances. Their own symbolism tells us as much.
I encourage readers to watch my Female Illuminati program, which focuses on the role of the Sisterhood of Death, also known as the Order of Sion. In this program I decode the symbolism employed by the most powerful secret societies of the world, revealing it to be overwhelmingly female. Once this fact is grasped, sincere researchers will not be able to explain away the presence and influence of the Female Illuminati, as if it is nothing more than a figment of my imagination.

Some material presented will contain links, quotes, ideologies, etc., the contents of which should be understood to first, in their whole, reflect the views or opinions of their editors, and second, are used in my personal research as "fair use" sources only, and not espousement one way or the other. Researching for 'truth' leads one all over the place...a piece here, a piece there. As a researcher, I hunt, gather and disassemble resources, trying to put all the pieces into a coherent and logical whole. I encourage you to do the same. And please remember, these pages are only my effort to collect all the pieces I can find and see if they properly fit into the 'reality aggregate'.
I've come to realize that 'truth' boils down to what we 'believe' the facts we've gathered point to. We only 'know' what we've 'experienced' firsthand. Everything else - what we read, what we watch, what we hear - is what someone else's gathered facts point to and 'they' 'believe' is 'truth', so that 'truth' seems to change in direct proportion to newly gathered facts divided by applied plausibility. Though I believe there is 'truth', until someone celestial who 'knows' all the facts parts the heavens and throws us a scroll titled "Here Are ALL The Facts And Lies In The Order They Happened," I can't know for sure exactly what "the whole truth' on any given subject is, and what applies to me applies to everyone.

Never in your long ascendancy will you lose the power to recognize your associates of former existences. Always, as you ascend inward in the scale of life, will you retain the ability to recognize and fraternize with the fellow beings of your previous and lower levels of experience. Each new translation or resurrection will add one more group of spirit beings to your vision range without in the least depriving you of the ability to recognize your friends and fellows of former estates.
Princess Bride 1987 Wallace Shawn (Vizzini) and Mandy Patinkin (Inigo Montoya)
Vizzini: HE DIDN'T FALL? INCONCEIVABLE.
Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
And here is mystery: The more closely man approaches God through love, the greater the reality -- actuality -- of that man. The more man withdraws from God, the more nearly he approaches nonreality -- cessation of existence. When man consecrates his will to the doing of the Father's will, when man gives God all that he has, then does God make that man more than he is.
"And do you not remember that I said to you once before that, if you had your spiritual eyes anointed, you would then see the heavens opened and behold the angels of God ascending and descending? It is by the ministry of the angels that one world may be kept in touch with other worlds, for have I not repeatedly told you that I have other sheep not of this fold?"
But we know that there dwells within the human mind a fragment of God, and that there sojourns with the human soul the Spirit of Truth; and we further know that these spirit forces conspire to enable material man to grasp the reality of spiritual values and to comprehend the philosophy of universe meanings. But even more certainly we know that these spirits of the Divine Presence are able to assist man in the spiritual appropriation of all truth contributory to the enhancement of the ever-progressing reality of personal religious experience—God-consciousness.
When you are through down here, when your course has been run in temporary form on earth, when your trial trip in the flesh is finished, when the dust that composes the mortal tabernacle "returns to the earth whence it came"; then, it is revealed, the indwelling "Spirit shall return to God who gave it." There sojourns within each moral being of this planet a fragment of God, a part and parcel of divinity. It is not yet yours by right of possession, but it is designedly intended to be one with you if you survive the mortal existence.
And the greatest of all the unfathomable mysteries of God is the phenomenon of the divine indwelling of mortal minds. The manner in which the Universal Father sojourns with the creatures of time is the most profound of all universe mysteries; the divine presence in the mind of man is the mystery of mysteries.
To every spirit being and to every mortal creature in every sphere and on every world of the universe of universes, the Universal Father reveals all of his gracious and divine self that can be discerned or comprehended by such spirit beings and by such mortal creatures. God is no respecter of persons, either spiritual or material. The divine presence which any child of the universe enjoys at any given moment is limited only by the capacity of such a creature to receive and to discern the spirit actualities of the supermaterial world.
Paradise is the eternal center of the universe of universes and the abiding place of the Universal Father, the Eternal Son, the Infinite Spirit, and their divine co-ordinates and associates. This central Isle is the most gigantic organized body of cosmic reality in all the master universe. Paradise is a material sphere as well as a spiritual abode. All of the intelligent creation of the Universal Father is domiciled on material abodes; hence must the absolute controlling center also be material, literal. And again it should be reiterated that spirit things and spiritual beings are real.
Culture presupposes quality of mind; culture cannot be enhanced unless mind is elevated. Superior intellect will seek a noble culture and find some way to attain such a goal. Inferior minds will spurn the highest culture even when presented to them ready-made.
True liberty is the associate of genuine self-respect; false liberty is the consort of self-admiration. True liberty is the fruit of self-control; false liberty, the assumption of self-assertion. Self-control leads to altruistic service; self-admiration tends towards the exploitation of others for the selfish aggrandizement of such a mistaken individual as is willing to sacrifice righteous attainment for the sake of possessing unjust power over his fellow beings.
How dare the self-willed creature encroach upon the rights of his fellows in the name of personal liberty when the Supreme Rulers of the universe stand back in merciful respect for these prerogatives of will and potentials of personality! No being, in the exercise of his supposed personal liberty, has a right to deprive any other being of those privileges of existence conferred by the Creators and duly respected by all their loyal associates, subordinates, and subjects.
There is no error greater than that species of self-deception which leads intelligent beings to crave the exercise of power over other beings for the purpose of depriving these persons of their natural liberties. The golden rule of human fairness cries out against all such fraud, unfairness, selfishness, and unrighteousness.
